I wonder why this is necessary if both MSO and LibreOffice interpret the
viewbox and arc command the same way. If they don't, I'd consider to scale
the parameters of the arc command because other command might rely on the
viewbox. Or maybe the view port were set to 0,0,0,0 as in tdf#76334? I saw
pptx always import the viewbox as 0,0,0,0, and there are treatment that I
felt that might be wrong.

Just base on my vague memory hacking custom shapes. Hope that helps.

Best regards.
